Week 4: at Pittsburgh Steelers

All WR vs PIT

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Alex Smith bounced back from a poor Week Two effort (20/37 for 186 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, with four sacks taken for -14 yards) to post an effective 25/33 for 237 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown vs. the Jets last weekend (two sacks taken for -16 yards). Travis Kelce (seven targets for 6/89/1 receiving), Chris Conley (five for 3/44/0) and Jeremy Maclin (seven for 4/35/0) were the top three receivers for Smith as the Chiefs trounced the Jets 24-3 off a very strong defensive effort (six interceptions by the pass defense last week). The Steelers were spanked by the Eagles last weekend, 3-34, and they allowed over 300 yards passing to rookie Carson Wentz (23/31 for 301 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions) with zero sacks to their credit. So far this year the Steelers are 31st in the NFL averaging 332.0 net passing yards given out per game, with three passing scores given out, vs two interceptions and a pathetic one sack (worst in the NFL in this category). Over the first three weeks of the season, Pittsburgh has averaged 20.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (15th-most in the NFL); and 18.6 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (eighth-least); with 6.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (16th in the NFL). This looks like a good matchup for Smith despite traveling to hostile Heinz Stadium - the Steelers' pass D is reeling entering Week Four. Also, the rushing matchup is tough for the running backs, so Smith may need to sling it quite a bit in this game.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs NYJ (7 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)

Maclin was used mostly on very short passes and couldn't convert his two deep targets into catches because he didn't create separation. With the nature of the Chiefs offense, he is only going to be a good play when they face an opponent who scores enough to force them to open up the passing game.

2016 Week 2 vs HOU (15 / 6 / 68 / 0 rec)

In what has become a nearly every week trend throughout Jeremy Maclin's tenure with the Chiefs, he led the team in catches, yards and targets. Maclin finished with six catches for 68 yards, but the bad news is that it took 16 targets for him to achieve those totals. Maclin was hamstrung by Smith's time to throw, as although he was targeted 16 times, roughly half of his incompletions (by my count) were off target and hardly catchable balls for Maclin. He continues to be a high volume target that should see his yardage and touchdown totals climb as the year goes on.

2016 Week 1 vs SD (7 / 5 / 63 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Maclin is the clear number one receiver for this team and showed it by reeling in 5 catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Maclin is a quick hitting receiver that can take the top off a defense or run by you after catching that short screen. Maclin's 19-yard touchdown brought the Chiefs within 10 in the fourth quarter and was monumental in the comeback. There was one scary moment when Maclin left the game after taking a shot to the head, but he was able to return and did not show any concussion symptoms. With no clear number two receiver, Maclin figures to see the bulk of the targets going forward.
